David Bowie: Blackstar

Music

ByTheMinMusic

30 minute alarm call... My coruscating review of the new @DavidBowieReal LP coming up between 7 and 8pm.

Fairly certain it'll be a bit more upbeat than this dude's...

Meanwhile, here's a wee story called The Thin White Duke Street to warm you up. See you shortly.

Hi... you've maybe read the preceding Thin White Duke Street story. You'll deduce a few things from it...

1. I'm over 50.....

2. Like almost everybody else of such vintage, I remember Starman on TOTP as a pivotal moment in music, and....

3. The Strawbs are due a major retrospective / re-appraisal. Probably.

Like many of you, I've grown up listening to Bowie records and whilst there will be far more dedicated fans that me reading this...

I hope I can capture something of what that legacy means, as I listen to 7 seven songs made by a geezer with a well-worn bus pass.
